Memorial Students Rejected a Bad Proposal, Not a U-Pass Program

in Journalism by

If you’re disappointed with the results of the recent U-Pass student vote at Memorial, don’t be disappointed with the students. It’s good news that 51% of eligible voters participated, and it means that 71% of those students voting “No” is a clear rejection of the proposal by the student body. However, this vote can only tell us how students felt about this proposal. It does not tell us how students feel about a U-Pass in general. Students did not support the specific U-Pass program proposed by Memorial University, Metrobus, and the City of St. John’s because of ineffective communication, inappropriate pricing, and inadequate scope to address the core transit issue: that all true growth opportunities for Metrobus ridership lie outside the current service area. Metrobus and the City have been thinking about U-Pass programs as a means of improving public transit since at least 2011.  One of the recommendations in…

It’s OK to fill uncleared sidewalks with snow

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

Do you live in downtown St. John’s and have nowhere to put your snow? Well, here’s a clarification to the snow removal by-law. The issue at hand was initially raised in city council two weeks ago, but it resurfaced yesterday after residents brought up concerns that they had nowhere to shovel or deposit the snow on their properties. Councillor Gerry Colbert says the rules regarding where homeowners can place snow have not changed — but the enforcement has. He says that people will only be fined if they fill in cleared streets or sidewalks. Otherwise, Colbert says, it’s OK to fill the sidewalks if they have not yet been cleared. And, note this: the city will clear the snow a second time around, but the bill for doing so will be sent to the snow pusher. Ouch.
